Description 

Greeting Crack would be a pretty good first lead or an easy warmup to start the day or maybe one last route on the way out. Locate a block that is at the bottom right hand corner of the crag with an obvious hand crack above it. Start at the crack that forms the left hand edge of the block, climb up and traverse right into the crack, and then go straight up, or just climb directly up the block into the crack.


Location 

This route is on the Introductory Buttress, which is the first cliff that you will see on your left as you approach the Main Face. It is the obvious crack that you can see just a few feet left of the right arete on the crag. A third class ramp on the climber's left can be used for descent or to get to the top of the cliff to set up a TR.


Protection 

The crack will take 2 or 3 inch cams and some smaller nut placements up near the top. There is a boulder set back about ten feet from the top out with a solid horizontal to make a bomber gear anchor for a TR also.
